There will be three exams during the semester. The date of the first exam is February 21 and the date of the second exam is March 28. The final exam is scheduled for Thursday, May 2, 2019 from 1:00 to 3:00pm in the same room as class. Missed exams cannot be made up, regardless of the reason for absence. You may not arrive late for exams. If you are late, you may not make the exam up.
Late Deliverable Policy
A deliverable (assignment or online quiz) is considered late if it is submitted after the beginning of class. No late deliverables will be accepted without penalty, and equipment failure is not an acceptable reason for turning in a deliverable late.
All assignments will be assessed a 20% penalty (subtracted from that assignment’s score) each day they are late. No credit will be given for assignments turned in more than three days past the due date.
However, you must submit all assignments, even if no credit is given. If you skip an assignment, an additional 10 points will be subtracted from your final grade in the course. For example, if you do not turn in an assignment worth 5% of the course grade, you will receive no credit for that assignment plus a 10 point penalty, reducing your maximum grade in the course to an 85.
Missed or late quiz submissions will receive a zero grade. In addition, one point will be subtracted from your final course grade for every missing submission at the end of the semester. If you submit the quiz more than once only the oldest one submitted will count (i.e. the original submission).
You can miss one quiz without penalty; if you don’t miss any quizzes, your lowest quiz score will be dropped.
Missed or late weekly discussion question submissions will receive a zero grade. In addition, one point will be subtracted from your final course grade for every missing or late submission.
You can miss one weekly discussion question submission without penalty.
There will be four assignments. Individual projects are to be completed without consulting your fellow students and they should represent your own work. Group projects should reflect the work of your group, but no one else. If you need help, you may consult with your instructor or the Information Technology Assistant (if applicable).
